Apophenia 2

Herewith some Apophenia Votive Figurines posing as garden sprites, the middle one in black milliput over wire served to make a two part plaster mould for the other two cast from molten tin, without excessive collateral damage to the kitchen. The solid tin versions weigh in at over half a pound each. Lead free solder provides a convenient source of 98% tin. The plaster mould did not survive beyond the second casting.

With Immanent Neo-Pagan Deities, portable physical representations always come in handy for evocation or invocation. These figurines will feature in a forthcoming Grove event and in the next project at Arcanorium College.

Apophenia 2 Course, Arcanorium College January 2018

An Invocation of the Goddess Apophenia, She of the peculiar connections between various phenomena/perceptions/concepts/ideas and other phenomena/perceptions/concepts/ideas that ordinary mortals do not commonly perceive. This in support of assorted personal projects/quests/questions, and the execution and/or resolution thereof.

Caveat Emptor: -This may lead to inspiration, genius insight, mistake, or plain craziness.

Metaphysics exists as metaphor for the physical.

(Welcome to Chaos Magic – Post-Neoplatonic Esotericism in the raw.)

Metaphor provides the mechanism by which the mind relates to, and controls, physical reality.

We shall experiment with classical esoteric symbolism, Ars Combinatoria, Zairja, Cut Ups, Chaotic Torsion Pendulums, experimental investments of belief, non-chemognostic methods of hallucination induction, various mechanical, psychological and magical techniques for superposing ideas and concepts and mystical intuitions.

Participants will have to make and do a lot of stuff; and may anticipate finishing the course in a somewhat different state of brain to that in which they entered it.
